Hello all! I don't generally put up two posts in one day but this is related to my previous post about the Icing magnetics - it's the polishes on my nails! If I had added my manicure the post would have been too huge, I think. So, here are some additional pictures and thoughts about my nails... and some exciting news - I have a new camera!
The colors are Rose Sparkle, Antique Brass Sparkle, Black Sparkle, and then Rose Sparkle again. I skipped out on using Blue Shimmer because it doesn't have a glittery finish like these do. I'll do that one another time. There is top coat in these pictures, but not a very shiny one.
I think the magnetic designs came out better on my right hand. I used the wavy-design magnet on all my nails save for the black ones. I used my LCN star-pattern magnet for those. I love the wavy magnets. It looks like ribbons running down my nails! And each ring finger got a holographic silver star paillette applied to one side. The magnetic pattern looks like shine rays coming from the stars. =)
I just have to say it's so much easier using magnetics on my own nails, rather than swatching a nail wheel. Having to hold both the wheel and the magnet - carefully! is just about as much as my shaky hands can muster.
I just got my camera a couple days ago, it's a Canon which I never thought I would buy. My boyfriend has a Canon and while it takes great pictures I never liked using it myself. This one has the kind of controls I like, though. In fact, it mostly done by touchscreen. Anyway, I'm still getting used to it and what settings I should use. I'll probably make a separate post about my camera when I have less awesome nail polish to blog about. ;P But I have to ask: can you notice a difference for the better?
My kitty was in my lap during my Nail-of-the-Day pictures. So, here are my nails, on her pretty fur! This actually came out really well-focused (click to see larger). I don't know about you but I think she looks great with these polish colors, too. Good thing cats don't have fingernails. =P
One more picture of my nails for the road! Thank you so much for reading and if you have any thoughts please share them. =)
